Definitely - I just would like to see the outcome of this discussion.
That's why I'm trying to push it a bit:  My goal is some reasonable

I promise the docs will be up to date then as well.

The list was renamed to debian-blends (because of constantly misuse of
derivatives and private adaptions).  Docs updated accordingly - thanks
for the hint.
Kind regards
